Maybe an '83 920 - only made '81~'83 . . did you loose all shifting up/down?

You need to fill in your profile and signature.

This post is a bit confusing where you state that the bike lost its gears and then you go on about pistons and coils.

If you lost all your ability to shift gears up or down, you are looking into pulling off the left side engine cover. Before doing that though, make sure that the splines on the shifter shaft are not stripped.

If your shifter lever is stripped, you will need a new shifter lever.

If your lever is not stripped, then you will need to remove the left side engine cover to see if the linkage inside the engine is damaged.

Keep us posted and post pics of your progress!
